Most Rugby players wear shoulder pads, which protects them when they tackle and for when they are in a scrum or ruck. The players who go in the scrums and rucks wear scrum hats, this prevents them from head injuries, but also prevents cauliflower ears. And nearly all the players wear gum shields to protect their teeth.

Called a "Scrum Cap" it was originally worn by members of the forwards to firstly save they heads from direct contact with studs and also to save the ear from continual damage. The cap now is worn by a number of position players for the same reason.Its not made of a hard material as seen in American Football
